LICENSE AGREEMENT
 
FEDORA(TM) 15
 
 
This agreement governs the download, installation or use of the Software
 
(as defined below) and any updates to the Software, regardless of the
 
delivery mechanism. The Software is a collective work under U.S.
 
Copyright Law.  Subject to the following terms, Red Hat grants to
 
the user ("User") a license to this collective work pursuant to the GNU
 
General Public License version 2.  By downloading, installing or using
 
the Software, User agrees to the terms of this agreement.
 
 
1.  THE SOFTWARE.  Fedora (the "Software") is a modular Linux
 
operating system consisting of hundreds of software components. The
 
end user license agreement for each component is located in the
 
component's source code.  With the exception of certain image files
 
containing the Fedora trademark identified in Section 2 below, the
 
license terms for the components permit User to copy and
 
redistribute the component.  With the potential exception of certain
 
firmware files (denoted in the License field of the RPM packaging),
 
the license terms for the components permit User to copy, modify and
 
redistribute the component, in both source code and binary code
 
forms.  This agreement does not limit User's rights under, or grant
 
User rights that supersede, the license terms of any particular
 
component.
 
 
2.  INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.  The Software and each of its
 
components, including the source code, documentation, appearance,
 
structure and organization are copyrighted by Red Hat and
 
others and are protected under copyright and other laws.  Title to
 
the Software and any component, or to any copy, modification, or
 
merged portion shall remain with the aforementioned, subject to the
 
applicable license.  The "Fedora" trademark is a trademark of Red
 
Hat, Inc. ("Red Hat") in the U.S. and other countries and is used by
 
permission.  This agreement permits User to distribute unmodified
 
copies of Software using the Fedora trademark on the condition that
 
User follows Red Hat's trademark guidelines located at
 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legal.  User must abide by these
 
trademark guidelines when distributing the Software, regardless of
 
whether the Software has been modified.  If User modifies the
 
Software, then User must replace all images containing the "Fedora"
 
trademark.  Those images are in the fedora-logos package.
 
 
3.  LIMITED WARRANTY.  Except as specifically stated in this agreement
 
or a license for a particular component, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT
 
PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, THE SOFTWARE AND THE COMPONENTS ARE
 
PROVIDED AND LICENSED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND,
 
EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
 
MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
 
PURPOSE.  Neither the Fedora Project nor Red Hat warrants that the
 
functions contained in the Software will meet User's requirements or
 
that the operation of the Software will be entirely error free or
 
appear precisely as described in the accompanying documentation.
 
USE OF THE SOFTWARE IS AT USER'S OWN RISK.
 
 
4.  LIMITATION OF REMEDIES AND LIABILITY. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT
 
PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, FEDORA PROJECT AND RED HAT WILL NOT BE
 
LIABLE TO USER FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING INCIDENTAL OR
 
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS OR LOST SAVINGS ARISING OUT OF
 
THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE, EVEN IF FEDORA PROJECT OR
 
RED HAT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
